It’s been one of those days today. I am glad I am not in work for the one reason that I don’t think I could have been around that food today. I’ve still carried on, don’t get me wrong, but some things have been at the forefront of my mind.
Telling my mum today about Jay’s loss was sad, as she turned around and said ‘it could have been you.’ and I know she is right. ED can take anyone of us at anytime. It is such a strain on the body we really put our lives at risk.
I’ve tried not to let it get me down too much today, but all the years I knew Jay, (although the last few were mostly more down to just facebook) than the forums or chat rooms where I first met her, I am still sad.
We’re going out this evening, orange Wed, so a nice meal and the cinema it is. I hadn’t wanted to go anywhere this morning, but I do now.
Writing wise, eeek. I’ve a skype tomorrow with EJ, and I’ve not done a huge amount. With being away for the weekend and catching up with jobs at home, I have to knuckle down tomorrow and get some done.
Will catch you soon, and for anyone visiting who knew Jay, say hello, I won’t mind. It’s good to talk. As that’s how I met her in the first place.
Jay Taylor, a beautiful friend. Taken far too early.
For those who know me a little bit, and for those who don’t know me…
I suffered with Anorexia and Bulimia for 16 years. I’ve been in recovery for 4, and a very hard fight to get to where I am.
Today I lost a wonderful friend to the terrible illness, a friend who picked me up, laughed with me and cared for me, when she was suffering as much as I was. (i know that some people know nothing about these illnesses
This is my blog, but this is a place where people pop in from all over the world. They come and I hope they learn something too. Maybe you’ve known someone, or do know someone, or may in the future.
RIP hunnie, your fight was a tough one, you fought your best. With God there will be no more pain.
Love to everyone out there, suffering and to those lives you touched, for you sure touched mine.
Hey there. Got a busy weekend planned. We’re off road tripping around the country to visit a few people and see the All England Koi show in London. 🙂
Excited and sat waiting to go lol…..
Will post soon when we’re back. Although not sure as to when yet, might be stopping somewhere on the way home. As we’re on hols all next week too. I guess that just depends on how much cash we spend at the show….
🙂 x x
I sort of think the week is dragging a little, but then I think well two days ago was Sunday and I was writing all day.
Wow, sometimes it does go so fast.
Monday was much easier in work than today has been. When the van’s day is slow, I’ve got more time to think about the food that’s on it. And it’s so easy to forget and just pick something up to eat. Hard to resist.
However, I did try some of one of our new dishes. Half a Beef and Blackbean wrap. Very nice indeed… I had to include it on my snack list and not indulge on anything else.
Writing wise, things went very well over the weekend. I’ve got more to do, but it’s getting better. Having a computer that ‘works’ is just amazing. No crashing, nothing. Perfect.
Onwards to the weekend. We’ve got a week off, and we’re away to Swanley to a big Koi show.
Kinda scared to leave my mum in charge of Bobby, as she doesn’t really like birds. But I’m sure she will be fine… eeek… I’ll still fret, he’s my baby.
I’ve got the whole day to myself, so I’m really going to knuckle down and edit. I set myself a pretty good working day. So, coffee and toast followed by clocking on at 9am. Hubby will be home at 4pm so I’ve 7 full hours.
I’m not too sure I can take a full hit at that length, but I’m going to try. I’ll take a little time off for lunch. And then be right back at it.
One of the worst things about being an early bird, is that you get all your big jobs done before most people are even up on a Sunday. I can never get much of a sleep in. Always awake at the same time every day. No matter where I am or what I am doing.
I bet it will be the exact same thing when we’re on holiday next week. Oh well. Least there is plenty of writing/editing to go through.
So, my goals really at the start of the year, and after nanowrimo were to polish this novel up and get start the process of querying this year. I do still aim to complete that polish, but my own realistic goals have to give me time in the summer for my animals. And I kinda forget through the winter how much time they really do take up.
I’m going to strive to get through the rest of the edits needed in the next four months. If I pull my finger out. Which I have been doing. Then I think I might just make it.
Keep your fingers crossed for me, I’m pushing on. Got Bobby for company so at least I have someone to chat too. lol
I will report my day, later… just so you know.
